About the Pride Center

The Pride Center is a 501(c)(3) LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer) community center with a justice focused mission.

The Pride Center works to improve the lives of LGBTQ+ people through:

  • Free and low-cost community events;
  • Monthly support groups;
  • LGBTQ+ Youth Program to empower and support young people;
  • Senior Drop-In space;
  • Partner with Montefiore Nyack Hospital to provide LGBTQ+ healthcare at the Jacobs Family Pride Wellness Center;
  • Survival services to ensure everyone’s basic needs are met;
  • Referrals, individual advocacy, and navigation around medical care, mental health, housing, legal, and social services;
  • Advocacy to address discrimination, close service gaps, and make change.

We envision and manifest an abundant world where LGBTQ+ people of all ages are safe, pursuing their dreams and goals, and held by a strong, vibrant community.

The Pride Center is the only organization in Rockland County whose sole mission is improving the lives of LGBTQ+ people. We serve people from throughout the Hudson Valley and Northern New Jersey.

LGBTQ+ Youth Program & Family Support

The Pride Center’s Youth Program and Family Support Services provide a web of community care and healing that centers the needs of our most vulnerable community members.

Youth in middle and high school meet twice a week for a free, supervised afterschool program. This in-person healing and empowerment space provides dinner, mental health resources, tutoring, opportunities to socialize, and holistic support in both English and Spanish. Consistent engagement in this program is proven to increase high school graduation rates, reduce hospitalizations for mental health emergencies, and decrease risk-taking behaviors.

The Pride Center’s youth team also provides one-on-one support for families of LGBTQ+ young people in English and Spanish. From advocacy at school to space to process a young person’s journey, the Pride Center is here to meet families where they are.

For questions or to learn more, contact Alex Francisco, Director of Youth & Young Adult Services, at alex@rocklandpridecenter.org or (845) 353-6300.
